He said to the barber: Start with the right side and shave it.

حَدَّثَنَا عُبَيْدُ بْنُ هِشَامٍ أَبُو نُعَيْمٍ الْحَلَبِيُّ، وَعَمْرُو بْنُ عُثْمَانَ الْمَعْنَى، - قَالاَ - حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ حَسَّانَ، بِإِسْنَادِهِ بِهَذَا قَالَ فِيهِ قَالَ لِلْحَالِقِ ‏

"‏ ابْدَأْ بِشِقِّي الأَيْمَنِ فَاحْلِقْهُ ‏"
